Holiday Spectacular
Make a joyful noise at the Red Mountain Theatre (RMT) in Birmingham through Sunday, Dec. 18 during the annual celebration of the Holiday Spectacular. This year’s performance blends musical numbers both traditional and modern, from Celtic carols to recent seasonal songs from popular artists, plus choreography and a few animal friends. Singers Amy Johnson, Caleb Clark, Madison Hagler and Juna Givhan have all appeared in recent productions, and dance numbers will feature RMT favorites Jamorris Rivers and Bria Tyner. Joining the Spectacular this year is Morgan Smith, an Alabama native and alumna of the RMT Performing Ensembles. RMT also welcomes vocalist Dominique Posey, known for his 20-year career appearing with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Vox Fortura and Perfect Note, among others. Performances are recommended for all ages. Tickets can be purchased online at

Alabama State Capitol Christmas tree lighting
Kick off the season at the Capitol’s annual tree-lighting celebration in Montgomery, Friday, Dec. 2 at 5:30 p.m. The tree, grown in Bullock County, is a 35-foot eastern red cedar. The 151st Alabama Army National Guard Band will perform at 5 p.m. The tree will be displayed on the steps of the Capitol through the holiday season.

Wonderland Under Warrior
Rickwood Caverns is, once again, transformed into a winter wonderland through Sunday, Jan. 8.

The cave temperature remains at 62 degrees year-round. Reservations are highly recommended. The entire walk is about 1 mile inside the cave.
